"He's always had all the throws down, but to put it all together takes time," said Richt. "I think he has a pretty good feel now. He really doesn't overthrow it much and he knows what is expected of him."
Snapping the ball to Stafford in the fall will most likely be senior Fernando Velasco. Richt said Velasco has shown leadership throughout spring training.
"I knew he was a great kid and a great communicator, but I had never seen this type of leadership until this year," Richt said. "I think he's looking around now and seeing these puppies around him and realizing what he has to do. Coach (Stacy) Searels didn't have him at center and had him at guard. But I told Coach Searels that I thought he would probably have to be at center and he's done a great job so far."
